Hello, I am 24 years old and have never had sex because I was afraid of my strange penis. I am not circumsized and the head of my penis is barely visible as the skin covers it. When erect, I can see a the head a bit and it hurts when I touch it (sharp sensation). I was told that when an uncircumsized penis is erect, one should be able to see the entire head, but this is not the case with me. Anyway, and I am dating this woman and I think we will have sex soon so I am quiet anxious here!

  • The foreskin should be retracted above the head of the penis every day in the shower to clean it well. If this isnt done it can lead to hypersensitivity of the penis head due to lack of adequate exposure. Im thinking that you are not doing regular retraction and hence why your penis head is sensitive. Hence you need to start doing this.. very gently at first. Maybe you have got too much skin and that has helped lead to this hypersensitivity due to the lack of exposure.. I suggest to see a doctor to ask but in the mean time.. start trying what i suggested so your head becomes less sensitive.
